Star Wars: Clone Wars for DS Will Have Co-Op

Seeing Star Wars and co-op come together is a thing of beauty. That's why the crew here at Co-Optimus was pleased to find out (via GamesRadar) that the new Star Wars: Clone Wars game for the DS will have co-op. To be specific, the new Clone Wars game (subtitled as Jedi Alliance) has drop-in, drop-out co-op, which is great. It will be interesting to see this form of co-op on a handheld, but nonetheless, it is a welcome addition.

"The Most Co-Op Game Ever" Hits XBLA Next Month

Today seems like a good day to be a fan of SHMUPs and Shooter games.  Along with the previous news about Raiden IV comes the announcement that Schizoid, another co-op shoot em up, will hit Xbox Live Arcade sometime next month.  Schizoid was developed using  Microsoft's XNA, and is the first such game to be released on XBLA.  The developers call it the "most co-op game ever".  That us certainly a bold claim!  The color-based gameplay  echoes that of Ikaruga, but apparently color changing is not an option.  Players must protect their teammate while avoiding opposite colored enemies at the same time.  Color us very interested in checking out the trial version of this title sometime next month.

This Week In Co-Op: GTA IV (Games As Art Edition)

In preparation for the upcoming Xbox Live Co-Op Game Night, I've been catching up on my GTA IV skills. This week I've mainly been playing Hangman's NOOSE, my favorite co-op mode. What I realized while playing the mode is that in some small manner, the game mode helped demonstrate how games could be considered art. I know that Grand Theft Auto IV is not what most people think of when they hear the word "art," but bear with me.

Co-Op Release Alert: Elements of Destruction

Another co-op release hits Xbox Live Arcade today.  Elements of Destruction features 2 player co-op, both local and over Live.  If you were a fan of unleashing natural disasters on your poor, unsuspecting Metropolis in SimCity back in the day, then you might want to check out Elements of Destruction.  Players control lightning, earthquakes, and other forces of nature in order to cause as much mayhem as possible.  Elements of Destruction will set you back 800 points, or $10 bucks.

Aces of the Galaxy Co-Op Review

Aces of the Galaxy for the Xbox Live Arcade kind of came out of nowhere for us here at Co-Optimus.com.  That's not necessarily a bad thing, but hopefully this title doesn't get overlooked by player.  Gorgeous visuals, a great soundtrack, and fast and frantic gameplay all await you in Aces of the Galaxy (not to mention a badass pause screen) - but is the game worth your hard earned Microsoft Points?

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 Tidbits

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is one of the best co-op experiences of this generation, in my humble opinion.  The combination of action RPG gameplay and spandex-clad superhumans makes for a whole lot of over the top fun.  A sequel was announced recently, and it is set to arrive later this year.  A few details about the sequel have been revealed, and though there isn't too much information, it still is worth looking at.
